Throughout Europe before and during World War II, the ethnic German minority populations by and large supported Nazi Germany. After the war, these Germans were expelled en masse by many of those countries, including democratic Czechoslovakia, in retaliation for their having identified with the enemy.
The irony is that Israel’s Arab population more openly identifies with the country’s enemies than did any of the groups interned during World War II by Britain and the other Western democracies. Israeli Arabs on the whole make little attempt to hide their intense hatred for the democratic country in which they live, though they rarely seek to move to any of the 22 countries that have an Arab ethnic majority.
Most (but not all) Israeli Arabs support political parties and groups that are hostile to the existence of Israel and that openly back genocidal terrorist groups and Muslim countries that seek Israel’s obliteration.
Israeli far-leftist groups, awash in funding from hostile anti-Israel foreign governments and organizations, engage in sedition and treason during time of war, led by Israel’s academic tenured Far Left. None of these have been targeted for prosecution by Israel’s legal system or police.
Why not? Why can Taliban John and Jihad Jane be prosecuted in the U.S. while traitors in Israel enjoy immunity?
